Found September 19, 2012 on Friarhood:
After a little vacation I am back to writing the Daily Friar for you all. I guess while I was away we had some technical issues and the Padres took another series from the Rockies over the weekend. I would have posted yesterday, but I have been dealing with some personal issues after this weekend, not to mention the Padres had an off day. So now that they are playing again I am here to continue giving you Padres news on a daily basis, at least for the time being. Some days it will be me and some days it will be Alex Bartlett. Either way continue to come to Friarhood.com for your Daily Friar news. Here are your Padres links for today:Submit articles and follow me on twitterStults gives good effort, but Padres offense stalls – Padres.com“On Tuesday, though, it was simply a case of the other guy being better, as D-backs starting pitcher Ian Kennedy allowed one run over eight innings, as Arizona held off a late charge for a 3-2 victory over the Padres in front of a crowd of 20,811 at C...

Padres Could Contend In 2013

When the San Diego Padres extended both Huston Street and Carlos Quentin this summer, they effectively signaled an intent to contend in the NL West in the near future. The organization felt that future was imminent enough to forego acquiring additional young talent via the trade market and instead committed valuable resources to injury-prone (though productive) assets who play non...

Cameron Maybin Figuring It Out a Second Time

The San Diego Padres didn’t play on Monday, which means the San Diego Padres didn’t win on Monday. We currently live in a world in which this is an infrequent occurrence. We currently live in a world in which the Padres, Orioles, and A’s keep on winning, and the Red Sox have one of their worst rosters people can remember. In some ways this was a gradual shift and in other ways...

Everth Cabrera turns an acrobatic double play

Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera might not grade out too highly with defensive metrics, and isn't too great of a hitter, but he's had his share of great plays this season. A play in Tuesday night's Padres-Diamondbacks game might be near the top of the charts though. Cabrera fielded a Paul Goldschmidt grounder and took to second himself instead of wasting time flipping...

To play or not to play, that is the Padres' Quentin question

With 15 games to go in the season, the San Diego Padres could be reaching decision time with left fielder Carlos Quentin. Quentin hasn't played since Sept. 10, when he came out of the game after his first at-bat with pain in the right knee that was surgically repaired during spring training and kept him out of the Padres' first 49 games. Before that, Quentin had missed...

Cashner shut down by Padres; Quentin comes out again

The San Diego Padres shut down right-hander Andrew Cashner for the rest of the season Wednesday. Can left fielder Carlos Quentin be far behind? Cashner won't pitch again in 2012 because of a strained tendon behind his right armpit. Cashner's velocity on his fastball was off by five to eight miles per hours in his two starts since returning from the disabled list on...

Padres Shut Down Andrew Cashner for Season

The San Diego Padres have decided to shut down right-hander Andrew Cashner for the remainder of the season as he continues to deal with a strained right lat muscle, reports Corey Brock of MLB.com: Cashner, who has missed 51 games this season with a strained right lat, indicated on Wednesday that he is still having pain in the tendon under his right armpit.  "...

Daily Friar 9.20.12

The Padres are just about done for the season. They are now officially eliminated from the division race, and are 8 games back in the Wild Card standings. So while the playoffs were a longshot at the beginning of the moth, they are pretty much out of reach now. If they had kept winning and taken the first two games in Arizona instead of losing them horribly then we might have still...

D-backs' rally comes up short in loss to Padres

PHOENIX (AP) -- Jesus Guzman homered and Clayton Richard was effective enough as the San Diego Padres held on to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-5 on Thursday. Richard (14-12) allowed four runs and eight hits in six innings to raise his career record against Arizona to 6-0 -- including three wins in three starts at Chase Field over the past 10 weeks. Anthony Bass, the last of five...

Kennedy, D-backs open big series with Padres

With the Diamondbacks and Padres on the fringe of the playoff race, it's safe to say one of these teams will no longer be there when this three-game series concludes. The visiting Padres are further back in the hunt for the second wild-card spot in the NL, but they may have a good chance to make up some ground starting Tuesday night considering their recent performances against...

Friars Avert Sweep, Narrowly Escaping In Wednesday's Win.

San Diego came into Chase Field with a seven game winning streak in the Diamond backs home field. After winning five straight series and seven of their last eight, the Padres lost the three-game contest to Arizona by dropping their first two games to the Diamondbacks. The Padres bats failed to score more than two runs in each of the first two games before they scored three in the...

D-backs look to finish sweep of Padres

Reaching the postseason is largely out of their control, but the Arizona Diamondbacks have a good chance to move above .500 for the first time in nearly a month with a sweep of their pesky division rival. The Diamondbacks will go for their fourth straight win Thursday night and hand the Padres' Clayton Richard his first loss against them. Arizona has won eight of 12, but is...

Padres 6, Diamondbacks 5

Jesus Guzman homered and Clayton Richard was effective enough as the San Diego Padres held on to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-5 on Thursday. Richard (14-12) allowed four runs and eight hits in six innings to raise his career record against Arizona to 6-0 - including three wins in three starts at Chase Field over the past 10 weeks. He struck out three and walked one. Anthony...
